Guidelines for Artists To Participate:
Art-o-mat® submissions from artists are welcome at any time. Since our project is ongoing, we are always interested in new work. We fully respect the rights of artistic freedom and enjoy working with artists of all levels. However, Art-o-mat machines are not as forgiving when it comes to size/structure. Strict adherence to our guidelines is necessary as any deviation from the specifications below will cause vending difficulty, logistical problems and unnecessary expense. Our selections are made based on effort, craftsmanship and originality. With that said, a key factor in our review process is how the final piece will be viewed in the hands of someone who may have never bought art before. Once accepted, where your artwork is placed is based on the needs of each venue. There are 120 Art-o-mat locations throughout the world. For each work sold you will receive $2.50. If all goes well, prepare to be asked for more. If you are only able to keep us in stock periodically, that is ok. But, consider your involvement as a long term relationship and send work when you can. We want Art-o-mat to be part of your ongoing art production/promotion. Here’s how you get started: http://www.artomat.org/guidelines/
